family in grief

Dad and me on the dunes

sitting around in
baseball caps and bolo ties
family in grief

even in sadness
nothing stops us from eating
shall we start dinner?

a soul has been freed
who will be missed by many
such lucky angels

(in between i wasn't able to comment)

family in grief -- death of someone? or lost a game? can't make it....btw is that you in the photo, Janet? :)

wishes,
devika

i mean -- the first two made me doubt if its a game or death; though the third is clear - if we can consider the soul lucky, why grieve -- just my thought, Janet,

Hi Devika~ It's a photo of me and my dad, taken two years ago. He just died this morning after a long struggle with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and strokes.
He had about 50 baseball caps and many ties, so today, all the family was wearing them in his honor.

Oh! I am sorry about the loss, Janet,

Prayers that his soul finds peace...and my condolences to the bereaved too,

wishes,
devika

Janet said...

Thank you :-)

I'm sure he's in peace now. He was a beautiful man and beloved my all who knew him.

Your condolences are gratefully received.

Devika said...

wishes,
devika

Ah, another soul gone, eternal! My condolences, Janet.

All partings are hard:
here we are and here we go -
the ultimate way...
